A Brief History of Bellevue

Originally home to the Coast Salish tribe, the Puget Sound area, including Bellevue, was woodland where the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Native American peoples hunted and fished. Europeans began settling in the area in the 1800s and named the location Bellevue for “beautiful view” in French.

At that time, settlers began to mine the land and log Bellevue’s forests, transforming the area into a farming community. In 1940 the Lake Washington Floating Bridge was completed, connecting Bellevue to Seattle. New businesses emerged, and new residents came to call Bellevue and additional towns on the Eastside home.

The City of Bellevue was incorporated in 1953 and started annexing adjoining areas. Once considered a suburb of Seattle, today, Bellevue is known as a sophisticated city in its own right and a center for technology and retail.
